Open Forum


The secretary of the RedCross Areas Residents Association asked:

How can an area like ours Red Cross Lane, Stansgate Avenue, Greenlands CB2 that is swamped by issues coming into our three tiny cul-de-sacs to access hospitals/CBC (plus travelling through from Trumpington) get support to Design Out the Problems?


County Councillor Beckett replied that from a Highways perspective, he will be picking this issue up with the police.


Councillor S Davies advised that the residents should continue to document what they are experiencing and passing it on to the authorities/Police.  The city council’s job as the planning authority is not to compound the situation in this locality nor to replicate what has occurred in other locations.  Cllr Davies encouraged the residents to keep the pressure on.


PC Horsfall for Cambridgeshire Police (present for the next agenda item) informed the meeting that the Police did patrol regularly, but encouraged the residents to continue to be actively reporting incidents for example anti social moped driving.
